        There was a surreal moment about a year ago when I first met with Brian (Emily was sick) about their wedding. They were going to have a Kauai Beach Wedding. I don’t know about you, but this was kinda the Superbowl of wedding photography. But, in getting to know these fantastic humans (especially at their engagement shoot), it turned more into a welcoming into the family. Every time I look at these images, they put a smile on my face, but even more is memories of the pure-unadultrated joy these two had on that day. As I’m delivering their wedding album and a few prints this week, I wanted to share images with you in celebration of this fantastic day.

        First of all, can you have a more pristine place to get ready? I submit that you cannot.  Seriously, it was pure magic.

        Get used to Emily’s smile.  That will be in every photo.  None of the emotional bride, too-cool-for-school photos here. Just ear to ear grins.

        Seriously, the Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen.  They got engaged there and so wanted to complete the circle.  I can’t imagine a more pristine place to celebrate love.

        Those three were so the best kind of dorks. The whole day, they kept the party rolling and everyone smiling.

        I could get used to a backdrop like this.

        Wahoo! They did it.  After months of planning, lots of coordination (it’s no simple feat to bring 70 people to a tiny island in the middle of the Pacific), they were married!

        Before toasts, we stepped away with the couple for a few intimate photos. The sunset cooperated in a way that I couldn’t even imagine. I love how these images embody the joy, passion and depth of how much these two people love each other.
